Program/Service Summary





  1. Provide an overview of what has happened with the program/service to date. Identify successes experienced during this reporting period. Identify challenges or barriers encountered. Identify strategies implemented, or strategies that will be implemented, to address each challenge/barrier. Note if technical assistance is needed.

In the fourth and final quarter of FY16 services the Family NEST added 8 new families, with a yearly unduplicated count of 66 Children and 45 families. We have increased number of educational sessions and offerings for parents, to include both structured classes (Nurturing Healthy Children) and informative sessions. Parents may attend all of the offerings, but may not miss more than 2 of the sessions, without an approved absence. Adding additional NHC classes helps in that new families coming into the program will benefit from the structured curriculum and educational presentations, and families who have completed the NHC curriculum can attend the monthly presentations.

Outside Education Presenters and trainings during this quarter included:


  1. Bavolek Nurturing Parent Curriculum (our ongoing Educational program)

  2. Presentation on Home Schooling and how this must begin at birth – not just when the child is of legal age to begin school.

  3. Presentation and updates on the benefits of Breast Feeding and how you can still give your baby Breast Milk, even if you are unable to provide this nutrition to your baby directly.
  4. Updated families on community events and resources.

The families enjoyed our presentation on home schooling. I have already been given topics from the families and am working on speakers for next year. One will be a nurse on breast feeding, one topic is going back to cloth diapers, and Ben will do his presentation. Staff will be working on the schedule for the rest of the year.

The Family NEST receives many outside donations and the staff works to develop these relationships into ongoing contributions. This is always helpful in supporting the Grant budget program continues to receive many new donations that supporting the grant budget we have allocated for the purchase of incentive items. Our criteria remains the same in that all donated items must be new and meet the standards we set for health, safety, development and educational items, as well as items for expecting and nursing parents. The Family NEST does not accept or disperse used items of any kind. Again, this is a set criterion and is based on the original March of Dimes Storks Nest regulations. Likewise, we do not provide Infant or Child Car Seats, but will make referrals to others or contact the hospital if this is a need. This is a safety and liability concern, as we do not currently have a trained and qualified Child and Infant Safety Seat installer.

The families have enjoyed the items that have been donated and are taking advantage of the unique items that come in. Friendships have been made. For a lot of these parents/guardians this is a chance to talk to others with children and share and find out ideas from them. Family NEST has also referred six new families to Parent’s as Teachers this year.

This year we have worked with the families on individual basis to meet their needs. We delivered diapers and wipes to families who had ill children or for any reason when we had to cancel our program. Family NEST now collaborates with the new clothing closet at the Lutheran Church in Ogden.



  1. Identify changes or revisions made in the program/service during this reporting period. This would include changes in program/service staff.

None, except for offering additional educational and learning presentations.


  1. Is this program/service on schedule for the fiscal year? If not, identify the reason(s) and action steps that will be implemented to get the program/service on schedule. Include fiscal target/ expenditure information.

YES


  1. Was training or a services conducted as described in plan? If not identify reason(s) and action steps that will be implemented to get the program/service on schedule as well as plans to prevent this from occurring if funded next fiscal year.

Yes, we collaborated with LSI and YSS to offer staff training on Domestic Violence. Staff also attended EFR Training on Substance Abuse, including Opioids and Marijuana, among other harmful and addictive substances and the Boone/Dallas CPPC Mental Health Conference.



  1. Describe a collaborative effort involving this program/service that is in progress or that has occurred within the BooSt/Early Childhood Iowa Area during the reporting period. This example should reflect creative solutions to promote healthy and successful children 0-5 and their families. Describe the result (or the anticipated result if the effort is in progress) and explain how it strives to avoid duplication, enhance efforts, combine planning, and/or other progress.

Transportation continues to be an issue for our families. They either have one car or one parent is using the car to work. We are trying to help meet the needs of the families trying to improve their situations by working and cannot always make the store and meeting times. RaeAnn has been very helpful in taking diapers and wipes to families. We want to support their efforts to improve their family situations.

Family NEST continues to collaborate with other BooSt Service Providers. We find it helpful to offer “give and take” feedback between our program and the Stork’s Nest in Story County. Family NEST utilizes committed Volunteers in the community to assist with Store operations and “Check out” times. The volunteers are very good ambassadors for the program and the services it provides for families.
